Dragons, Devils split; Busy weekend wrap-up

The Clinton Dragons and Lady Dragons hosted Halls on Saturday as the teams completed their regular season home-and-home series.

In game one, the Lady Red Devils completed their season sweep of Clinton with a 67-44 win despite a game-high 26 points from Sarah Burton. The Lady Dragons also got nine points (all on three three-pointers) from freshman Lydia Snyder, but could not overcome the balanced scoring attack of Halls.

In the nightcap, the Dragons unleashed a three-point barrage in the first half, connecting on 12 triples on their way to a 56-19 halftime lead, and an 80-41 thrashing of the Red Devils.

Jackson Garner led CHS with 19 points (which included four treys), while Rishon Bright tallied 17, Lane Harrison added 16 (including four first-half threes), Jeremiah Blauvelt chipped in with 12 (two threes), and Trace Thackerson hit a trio of three-pointers as part of his 10 points.

This week will be busy for Clinton, with a trip to Karns on Tuesday, followed by a visit from Central on Thursday and a third straight Saturday of hoops when the Dragons and Lady Dragons host Campbell County. All games will be heard on the Fox & Farley Full Court Press, with coverage during the week beginning with live updates from the gym on Trading Time Primetime, followed by full coverage at 7. Saturday’s doubleheader will get started with the pregame show at 5:20, followed by the 5:30 tipoff between the Lady Dragons and the Lady Cougars.
